Crazy and controlling boyfriends (and girlfriends) that need to stay in constant contact with their significant other are going to be the most grateful for this new product by Goal Zero. Now, when your phone dies, just plug in to the Flip and you’ll be good to go. In all seriousness, the Flip 10 has come to the rescue many times when we’re out filming reviews, camping, or traveling. It’s a small and compact external battery that holds a single charge for a small USB powered device. Goal Zero assures a full charge off of a fully charged Flip, but I’ve definitely used it a few times without charging in between.
The Flip charges off of a USB power source and can also be charged by connecting a compatible solar panel. It takes about 3 hours to charge fully whether from a USB source or solar source. It takes the same amount of time to charge a phone or similar device from the Flip as it would from the wall charger (generally 2-4 hours). You can tell when the Flip has a full, 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 charged battery by the four blue lights on the top of the Flip.
The Flip is an important product to always throw in your purse if you find yourself without smartphone power. We all know how connected we get to our phones and so with this you won’t have to suffer when it dies. It’s also a great thing to have for emergency situations and traveling. The Flip is super packable, usable, and easy to bring along on any adventure.
